The display entrance wall has an overview of the 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes that changed the position of the Mississippi River. It contains a report from 1904 that was the first scientific paper on the massive earthquake as well as the first photos of the destruction. There are separate label panels in the exhibit--innovative designs tell the story of the geological history of the Mid-South.
Other new screens show an animated display of every earthquake from 1960 through the present and live earthquakes in the central United States.
